Without knowing any of the difficulties of dealing with hindi, this is
what I would try.

1. Do your work in Open office
2. Export your work in OO as PDF
3. Download the latest Scribus for windows,
4. Use that version of Scribus to import the OO generated pdf (Image
frame->get image(pdf)->use the Image tab of Properties to adjust size

It may work, it may not.
